I've been wanting to write about this for years but never knew quite what to say and how to say it tactfully. This year I've decided to just say it.
Halloween. I don't really love it anymore. I loved the holiday as a child when it was all about decorating the house with all the fun crafts you made at school and dressing up and going trick-or-treating. I am sure I will love it once again when I am a parent taking my kids trick or treating.
As an adult without kids I feel like the holiday is something completely different.
I have never understood why people feel the need to dress up as a "Adult" version of anything. I am definitely not just calling out women because men are just as guilty as men are.
In my own opinion I feel that I am a strong capable woman who doesn't want to be objectified. I also understand that what you wear doesn't completely define who you are. In my opinion I just feel that clothing can be an outward reflection of you and I always want to show that I respect myself. I also feel like I would feel extremely uncomfortable wearing hardly anything. Whether it is Halloween or not. I think costumes can be fun and creative and tasteful without being degrading.
